It's funny, I thought that being in our new home just in time for Christmas was going to make it even more magical. With my crazy work schedule and Costa's crazy travel schedule, we honestly haven't spent much time together. Don't get me wrong, our tree is absolutely next level! But I realized this—it's not the house you live in, the Christmas tree that you have or even the presents (well in my case, faux wrapped presents!) you have under the tree—it's the people you are with that bring the magic. ✨ #dollspartypretty

Well, it’s because list-building does 𝗻𝗼𝘁 have a one-size-fits-all strategy and I have a feeling you're not a one-size-fits-all type of person. So, the best thing you can do to grow your email list? Use tactics that are aligned with YOUR unique personality type. Here are 3 reasons why you should take your personality type into consideration when building your email list... ----- 𝟭.

THIS. This is why we love our job. We love our couples so much and are so thankful to work with such amazing angel humans who treat us more like long lost friends than vendors & with photographers who link arms with us as teammates to create magic for them. All of this brings us more joy than you will ever know, makes the hard days and taxes and #smallbusinessowner challenges worth it, and inspires us to work hard as hell with full hearts for our couples to create something true, beautiful and meaningful for them. If you are a past or future couple of ours, thank you 🙏🏻 We can never fully express our gratitude for making our dreams come true, for trusting us with one of your most special and sacred days, and for supporting our family. - - If you supported a small business of any kind this weekend, thank you too ✨ You made some hardworking people dance behind their screen & spend another day doing what they love for them and their families! - - Huge shoutout to @thiswildromancephoto for being a gem of a teammate, for modeling what it looks like to care and serve her couples so well & for capturing these amazing moments from @briiiioliver & @grantnoliver’s amazing wedding day!
Here is one of the items that got us very excited for this launch! :) It has been in our mind for more than a year and it took us many many months to plan, design and produce till it is ready. There are two main goals while designing this. One is to be able to fit as many chunky necklaces as possible within a compact space. Second, it is to retrieve any necklace that we want without getting them entangled unto one another. I think we did just that! *happy dance 🤸♀️* In total, it can fit up to 13 necklaces. Do check our Ridge Necklace Hanger. It will be mailed out to you from 2 Dec onwards. Comment below and let us know what you think about it!
Very overwhelmed...a lot of excitement and a lot happening. Mostly I need to book a flight somewhere so I can breath. Until then I gotta paint some walls and plan some parties (with red lipstick, of course💕)
Be bold and take risks!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're not just talking about fashion risks, Dolls! You can be BOLD with the way you live your life! It's time to take steps towards your dream life.

Oh, hey there! That’s just me crocheting this gorgeous yarn I bought with all the “EXPOSURE” I got for working for free. I could go into a whole diatribe about this topic, but I’ll leave it at this: We get offended when customers tell us we charge too much for our talents and skills, but many fall at the feet of businesses who ask us to create free content, market their products, and share our copy rights for “exposure.” Sure, there is a place for networking and making connections, but working for free should be undertaken with much thoughtfulness and strategy while also considering the actual cost to your business in terms of time, reputation, brand synchronicity, customer trust, and actual dollars. I know it’s exciting to feel special and chosen - and isn’t that the point in the first place? It’s a classic tactic. But special and chosen don’t pay the bills. Wise small business owners and influencers surround themselves with a supportive community with whom they can work through these questions of worth and seek discernment about pretty offers with little to no payoff. I’m not trying to be a downer, I’ve done it too! But, today, at year end, let’s take stock of the sheer number of hours we’ve given away for “exposure”. Was there any actual, trackable benefit? Let’s make a plan to do better in 2020.

Life is full of change. Sometimes those changes involve pulling down some walls. And whether it’s physical walls or emotional walls, it can involve some pain. I’m excited about what’s coming for this space that is currently being cleared in our little village. But as those old walls come down, I’ll admit there have been a few tears. And that’s ok. I’ve learned it’s ok to mourn what didn’t work out, even as I’m excited about what did. I’m happy and sad at the same time as the walls of these old buildings come down. Swipe to see the pic of ‘my’ building - still standing as the ones to the north of it are cleared out. By the end of this week they will all most likely be gone. I hope to watch ‘mine’ come down. And I’ll probably shed a few more tears. Not because I think those buildings should stay - they are/were crumbling and in need of way more than was sensible to spend on them. The new building that will take their place will be an amazing work of architecture. I’m beyond excited that a coffee shop is part of the new plan. I’m excited for the opportunities the new owner of all of this is bringing to the people of this village. So I’ll be smiling even if I cry a bit. And once it’s all gone, I’ll wipe the tears away and gladly welcome in the new. And isn’t that just how it is when we tear down walls in our heart? It’s painful but the end result is worth the pain. Here’s to a new day, new opportunities, new dreams, and walls pulled down.
“It’s not my fear of failure, but more the judgement of friends and family that holds me back from fully showing up on social media in my business.“ This is what my 1:1 client told me during our coaching call the other day 😣 Shitty right? How much are you holding back due to fear of judgement? Who gives a crap what Julie from high school thinks of you and what you are doing. Or what your opinionated cousin keeps telling you. Create the content you want to create. Do what makes you happy. Live your best life. This is what the mute and unfollow buttons are for. Stay in your lane and focus on what you want to accomplish ✌🏼
RUMBLE. That was my 2019 word of the year that I set for myself this time last year. To me the word meant I had my eyes open. I was in the thick of the mess. I opened my heart to the true experience. I was able to live my word out probably 6 out of 10. Giving birth, shifting out of my business to pursue something I love, going to therapy, being in love with my family of 4, working with clients I adore, deepening friendships, I reflect and see that I did a good job. But it’s just the beginning of being honest with myself. I’m ready for more. I don’t think I’ll choose RUMBLE as my word again but I’ve got a taste of it and I can’t wait to keep using it from my tool kit. Have you looked back on your word of the year? How did it go? Will you set a 2020 word of the year??
This has been one CRAZY year! So many things happen(ing) so many accomplishments + lessons, but the biggest lesson was learning to rest and taking breaks when needed...This month is a very special month! Year TWO for Glow! WOW! So, to celebrate, end the year right + take a proper break to spend with my family, we have a special sale coming soon just in time for the holidays! • • • As always I love YOU! And remember to REST💛

Quand'è stata l'ultima volta che hai fatto qualcosa di nuovo? E cosa hai fatto? Rispondi nei commenti ⬇️ qui sotto: è un esperimento per sondare quante opportunità ho di fare la veggente in futuro ma soprattutto è un tema collegato alla newsletter "speciale creatività" che sto scrivendo e che arriva l'ultimo giorno di ogni mese. C'è dentro una riflessione sulla creatività per chi vuole prendere confidenza e usarla alla prossima occasione buona, una parola con la sua etimologia curiosa e un'illustrazione che la rappresenta. È sempre in forma scritta e anche audio perché così puoi ascoltarla in ogni dove. La prossima arriva sabato 30 novembre e vi raccoglie, stremati dal Black Friday. Se non fai ancora parte della ciurma Newsletter, c'è un comodo link in BIO che ti fa salire a bordo. #lascritturahaloroinbocca#mycreativebiz#mycreativelife
